You want to be working on your core skill set of sleights, but you also need some great magic effects that you can learn quickly so you can start performing right away. Building your abilities as a magician is not about mastering knuckle busting moves. We all know many magicians who can do amazing sleights and flourishes, but when asked to actually show us a trick, they just look a bit blank and lost. You should perform as much as possible right from the start, so you learn stage craft, timing, audience control and showmanship skills. Adding some self working tricks, is a perfect way to balance both your practice and performance training.
There are a huge range of magic books and DVD’s available that teach self working tricks, but if you already own a few, you will understand how disappointing many of them can be. Stuffed full of boring mechanical procedures and complicated story plots. There is a massive gap in the market for a good teaching guide that gives professional quality tricks, suitable for magicians wanting to do magic without any knuckle busting moves and sleights.

All the team are very impressed with a magic training DVD for total beginners, and also working pro’s. I think it is a perfect solution to this problem. The guiding principles that started the project is excellent. To put together a set of very strong professional tricks, that are self working, and strip away all the complicated plots and abstract nonsense found in most collections of this nature. The project fits perfectly with the teaching principles MoM uses with magicians that come for personal tuition to the shop, and we now recommend this DVD to all our students doing training with us. In fact, we love it so much, we would like to invite you to try the tricks for free.
